Meet the Author

Boyé Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Mexico since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico City. He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA.

De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world!

His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the role of bars, cabarets and geisha houses in business, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations.

He has also written extensively on American culture. His latest book: CULTURAL FAILURES THAT ARE DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM!

    BS

    I can say without reading this book that it's absolutely not true, the Japanese are definately not the dominant race, not only are they a bunch of creepy sleazeballs but they're incredibly racist, and seeing as they're so racist most of them refuse to have children with other races of people obviously. In this way they're screwing themselves over because they aren't going to have diversity in they're race, and that isn't good at all. They're really stupid in that regard, sure they create great technology like wii and have higher test scores compared to a lot of countries but that doesn't make them better over all by any means.

    So-So

    A book that could probably been written using 8-10 key points in a bullet list.
